GeoMonday 2015.3 – Impressions

Hosted at the scenic location in the center of Potsdam, close to the river Havel, this 3rd GeoMonday turned out to be a really nice occasion for all drone enthusiasts. Our first outdoor hands on session was blessed with rays of sunlight from a Indian summer sun.

Thanks again to the interested audience and to all of our fantastic speakers.


The session was kicked-off with the live data collection session using a smart drone, presented by Arno Fischer,  professor at the University of Applied Sciences Brandenburg.

Here is the spectacular video from our session ground:


Immediately afterwards Frank Neitzel, professor at the Technical University (TU) Berlin, told us how to build a drone from very affordable components and get the system working.


Our third speaker of the evening was Martin Scholl. In his presentation he gave insights of a project equal to OpenStreetMap, the OpenAerialMap in order to create aerial views of the world:


The closing session was held by Christian Janke, Research Engineer at the European Aviation Security
Center (EASC)
 in Germany. He spoke about the chances and challenges of unmanned aviation.
